To all state employee haters:hamner75
Stop wasting time and go back to flipping burgers!
State workers are the backbone of all Californians. No furloughs, no pay cuts, or layoffs. Give us all raises and we will all start putting are money back into the economy and everyone will be happy.sealgaire
But, obviously you hate state workers, probably because you could not pass the entrance exam to get a job. Can I have a Big Mac, fries, and a medium coke please? Have a nice day.THESILKY1
Do you know for a fact, what will happen if you lay-off 100,000 State employees?tejouzi
Here is an answer to your statement. Half the businesses in the private sector will fold, and the other half that remain open, will not be open for long.
How is laying off thousands of state workers going to help the economy? You want to help the economy, TELL THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO STOPPPPPPP RIPPING OFF THE STATE!!!!! AND WASTING MY TAX DOLLARS BY CHARGING THE STATE TWICE AS MUCH FOR THE SAME SERVICE!!!!! Go take a math classCalifornia budget growth over the past 10 years:
The current deficit is $24 billion, which works out to about $2600 per family of four. (Is my math right?) Don't know about you, but if I got an additional tax bill of $2600 each year on top of what is already being confiscated I think I'd consider hauling butt.
But maybe the public employee unions are right. Shut your mouths and pay up, burger-flippers.
(Thanks for the Instalanche, Glenn. And let me add that I find it interesting that so many California public employees denigrate fast food workers. I don't know why. Flipping burgers is honest work, it's tough work, and it's something (raises hand) that many of us have had to do at one point in our lives in order to pay the bills.)
